Color throwdown #293 meets Pals Paper Arts #205
I used the similarly colored Everyday Enchantments DSP & Full of Life set (both retired) along with: Soft Sky, Pear Pizzaz, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla c/s; Pretties colored with Aquapainter and Pear Pizzazz & Tangerine Tango markers, Jewel Pearls, Beautifully Baroque TIEF.
The strips of paper I faux-sueded & embossed to give it a very soft and lovely texture.
To suede the cardstock:
*Cut paper to size you want (or cut larger and trim down after sueding).
*Rub paper back and forth all over to break down the fibers. A bone folder works great for this, but I use my handy-dandy Pampered Chef stoneware scraper thing (you know the little plastic square that comes with stoneware purchase?)
*When the edges start separating, very gently pull them apart to reveal the faux suede.
*If at any time your paper does not want to separate, simply rub some more to break the fibers apart and continue pulling apart.
